Finding home decor that’s both affordable and cute is tough, and sometimes near impossible. And while I don’t fancy myself to be a DIY guru in any way, shape, or form, there are a few crafts I know even I can handle, and these candle sticks are next on my list!

They’re shockingly easy to make and only require a few easy-to-get supplies. I’d recommend making a few at different heights to add some depth and dimension to your space. Then, throw these on your mantle, on your side tables as an accent piece, or use them as a centerpiece for your holiday meals!

How To Make Easy $5 Candle Holders:


  • Table legs (You can find these at Home Depot or Lowes)
  • Terra cotta pot bases
  • Gorilla Glue/Super glue
  • Paint (color of choice)


Flip the terra cotta bases upside down. Apply super glue to one end of your table leg and place apply it firmly onto a terra cotta base. Repeat this on the other side of the table leg to form your candle holder. Once it’s dry, paint the candle holders the color of your choice and allow the paint to dry. When they’re ready, set them up, place your candles, and enjoy!
